I will preface this recipe by saying I’m a fisherman’s daughter. So I’m quite partial to salmon…FRESH, PACIFIC, WILD CAUGHT SALMON. This recipe though? Calls for canned. Every year at Christmas, my parents give everybody canned salmon, and usually I turn it down. Bad memories from childhood,usually involving my mom trying to pass off canned […]

Ever since I started Weight Watchers, I’ve been on the hunt for good snacks. I like a good snack around 8:00 at night when I am on the computer. I’m happy to say that I have found a really good one. I am a cheese and crackers kind of girl. I’ll take salty over sweet […]

I am a runner. I also like to spin, lift weights and Zumba! But in my heart, I am a runner. However, there are things in running that I avoid because it hurts, it’s out of my comfort zone, it makes me breathe harder blah blah blah. Mainly speedwork and running hills. Yeah, I could […]

So last week I might have mentioned that this week was the LAST WEEK of the Power of One Challenge…..well, I was totally wrong. Yeah, I’m big enough to admit that I totally looked at the calendar wrong, and I obviously can’t count unless it involved subtracting numbers I see on the scale…… Anywhooooooo. You […]

As some of you already know, today just happens to be my birthday.  We won’t discuss exactly which one, but let’s just say I’ve been celebrating the anniversary of my 29th birthday for a long time and leave it at that, m’kay?

It’s my turn to light up the SJ stage and then quickly turn my back and run away after I leave my confessions here for you to read and analyze. I should probably charge admission for this confession session. Either that or I should be spilling my guts inside a tiny booth while I talk […]

When I first started reviewing the research on weight loss success, I found it extremely discouraging. You’ve heard the statistics, I’m sure: 95% of all those who lose weight gain the lost weight back, and often end up at a higher weight than when they started. What on earth is going on? Are we all […]
